Granada house description


HOUSE DESCRIPTION
House is a Charming, Modern ( built in 2006 by an American couple) home - yet it retains a colonial feel! Very Centrally Located,ONE BLOCK FROM SAN FRANCISCO CHURCH AND MONASTERY. Its Split Level . New Balcony off Master Bedroom. Efficient A/C in both bedrooms. In the center of the house is an open, uncovered area with a small COOL POOL WITH JETS, surrounded by lush foliage,hammocks and rocking chairs. There are tile floors throughout. Well-decorated with various French doors and windows.
Lovely detailed woodwork; Abundant lighting; And FANS galore hanging from high tropical bamboo ceilings. *NINE MODERN,CEILING FANS COOL YOU IN ALL AREAS OF THE HOUSE! SO MUCH BETTER THAN STILL SITTING HOT AIR! THIS MAJOR FEATURE IS NOT FOUND ANYWHERE ELSE IN TOWN!
There are two bedrooms,both with their own bathrooms. One on the main (bottom) level and one Master Bedroom on the second level.The Master Bedroom has a new gorgeous balcony with comfortable chairs and a stupendous view of the starry night & nearby Mombacho Volcano (when clear).
The house, Casa Las Brisas (house of breezes), is especially COOL due its efficient A/C's; its nine (9) large powerful ceiling fans (SUPER-COOLING!); the COOL POOL; breezes coming in the door and window off the living room, and the peaceful balcony off the Master Bedroom. These cooling aids are extremely important because Granada can get very hot. The balcony is an excellent feature, added in 2012.
I am continually improving the house. As of December ,2012, it has a brand new BLUE RAY DVD PLAYER, a new CD PLAYER, a new HOT WATER HEATER and a new POOL PUMP. The house is equipped with cable TV and with good internet service.
In addition, the house has a wonderful location- you can walk to the Central Park/Plaza and the main boulevard, LA CALZADA, where all the action is in five to eight minutes! The oldest church in Granada, San Francisco Church ,is just one block away.
Plus,the area is amongst the safest in Granada.Also taxis pass by every few minutes and the fare is only forty cents to any location within Granada!
PIease view all the photos on this site. They accurately show all of the house and were taken in 2012. The house is very modern - again it was built in 2006.

                                      The oldest church in Granada, Iglesia San Francisco, is only one block away. This is the best way to find where my house is.

                                      Lake Nicaragua, the largest in all of Central America, only a fifteen minute walk away.From the shore rent a boat out to the 'Thousand Islands' (Las Isletas) for a memorable,unique experience.

                                      Laguna Apollo- A clear lake volcano,excellent for swimming w fab Panaramic view is 20' away by car.

                                      Masaya - a nearby town, 15 miles away, has the best crafts market in the entire country.

                                      Volcanoes- several are nearby to climb. One is active.

                                      Year Purchased: 2010

                                      About: I am a 66 year young man just recently retired. After having spent my 20's in Law School and then Chiropractic College, I began my own business importing and wholesaling handicrafts and furniture from Bali and Thailand. This fit me well because I love to travel, then in Asia and later in Latin America most recently to Africa. I used to play tennis and basketball,so now I'm a big fan of those two sports. And now with the SF 49ers doing so well,I enjoy watching their games. Other things I enjoy are reading well-written books,seeing good movies,chatting and dining out.

                                      Why Granada:
                                      I want to preface this by saying that I'd travelled to about sixty-five countries before coming to Nicaragua and buying the first house I ever bought in a foreign country. Then two years ago I volunteered teaching for a month in Guatemala. When my stint was over I decided to take a look at nearby Nicargua. I found the people to be extraordinarily friendly, helpful and kind. So I returned with my partner to travel more and get some inexpensive dental work. She is a real estate agent and wanted to look at houses in Granada,a place we liked very much. When I saw this house,Casa las Brisas, it seemed so perfect for us! So I bought it for personal use, but also discovering I could rent it out while not in it. So I did not really buy this as a vacation rental but as a house for us to live part-time. Fortunately, because the house is so beautiful & comfortable it rents out easily. (See the reviews.)

                                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                                      * THE NINE MODERN,LARGE CEILING FANS WHICH COVER ALL THE HOUSE. THESE COOL YOU OFF WHILE INSIDE! (What a difference when they are off!) - Plunging into the small pool to cool off and using the jets to massage muscles. - Relaxing around the pool in a small hammock or a rocking chair reading or having a cool drink. - Having bedrooms on TWO levels for added privacy. - Air conditioning in both bedrooms. - Very high tropically designed ceilings giving a spacious feeling to the house. - The NEW balcony. See an incredible star-filled sky. - Beautiful woodwork on doors,beams & colonial arches. - Ample storage - Recessed lighting,Terracotta sconces. - Central location: short walk (5'-8') to the main streets,main park,almost all the excellent restaurants and La Calzada,the 'happening' street. - Ten minute bike ride to breezy Lake Nicaragua. AND new bicycle at house can be rented at $5/day, 25/week. - Very friendly Nicaraguan family who live next door.
